Jamsil Bee’s ‘War of Leaves’ finally kicks off.
Doosan Bears and LG Twins, ‘two families under one roof’ and ‘Jamsil rivals’, will have their first match of the regular season at Jamsil Stadium on the 14th and 16th. The two teams have never faced each other in the demonstration game, so this three-game series is the first match after the head change토스카지노.
Doosan and LG appointed a new command tower side by side after the 2022 season.
Doosan, which had succeeded in advancing to the Korean Series for 7 consecutive years from 2015 to 2021, broke up with former coach Taehyung Kim after falling to ninth place in the 2022 season. Doosan’s new head coach was Lee Seung-yeop, who was called the ‘national hitter’ during his active career.
The LG Twins finished second in the regular league last year and went directly to the playoffs, but were eliminated after being pushed through the semi-playoffs by Kiwoom Heroes with 1 win and 3 losses.
Despite the evaluation of superiority in power, when he knelt down to Kiwoom, LG replaced the manager. Director Yeom Gyeong-yeop, who has thick bones, was entrusted with the baton.
The confrontation between Doosan and LG, which share Jamsil Stadium as their home, is always regarded as the best ‘boxing card’. Traditionally, it is because it attracts so much attention that Jamsil rivals are traditionally assigned matches on Children’s Day.
Ahead of this season, an interesting element was added as Doosan and LG switched command towers side by side. It was even nicknamed the ‘war of lobes’ after the last names of the coaches of both teams.
If you look at his career as a player, coach Lee Seung-yeop is splendid.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop is considered the best slugger in the history of the KBO League. Coach Lee Seung-yeop still ranks first in career home runs (467).
Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop never saw the light of day as a player, with his career batting average only at 0.195.
However, in terms of his career as a manager, Yeom Kyung-yeop is far ahead.
Coach Lee Seung-yeop, who has not even coached since retiring in 2017, took his first steps as a leader when he was appointed as Doosan coach this year.
On the other hand, coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop achieved 406 wins, 7 draws and 325 losses while serving as Nexen Heroes from 2013 to 2016 and SK Wyverns (now SSG Landers) from 2019 to 2020.
In the relative performance of both teams, Doosan has never been pushed by LG from 2015 to 2021. In 2018, Doosan had an overwhelming advantage over LG, winning 15 wins and 1 loss.
But last year the tide turned. LG took the lead with 10 wins and 6 losses. It was the first time in 8 years since 2014 (8 wins, 1 draw, 7 losses) that LG was ahead of both teams in their opponents.
While LG was chosen as a candidate for the championship ahead of this season, Doosan was not among the fall baseball candidates selected by the managers of the other nine clubs.
In the current ranking, LG is slightly ahead. LG is tied for second place with 7 wins and 4 losses, while Doosan, which recorded 6 wins and 4 losses, is tied for fourth place.
Manager Lee Seung-yeop said, “I am well aware of the importance of the Jamsil rivalry. However, I still do not feel it.” told
He also promised, “When the players meet a strong team, the desire to win will be conveyed and they will burn their will. I will believe in the players and go.”
Coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said at the inauguration ceremony last year, “Doosan and LG are rivals, but rather than playing a special game, if we do our best according to the situation, we will be able to play a good game.”
He said, “I want Coach Lee Seung-yeop to succeed more than anyone else,” but expressed his resolve to win the rivalry game, saying, “However, I want to win a lot in head-to-head matches, and I hope Coach Lee Seung-yeop beats other teams.”
